Description

What? Nothing! does nothing... just nothing!

Are you just like me and sometimes just want to do nothing, nothing at all?

Well, that brought me to this revolutionary plugin for Joomla! All the plugins that are available do all sorts of stuff - there they are, all busy doing their thing. Adding functionality here. Manipulating html output there. Making your website better and better.

Well, that's all good and nice, but it's so much activity!
That's exactly where this plugin comes in...

What does it do? Absolutely nothing!

Tutorial

There is a Free and a Pro version of What? Nothing!.
The parts in this tutorial that only concern the Pro version will be marked with: Pro only

Introduction

What? Nothing! is a Joomla! system plugin that not only changes the way you will experience Joomla!, but is known to also alter the way you perceive life in general. It achieves this by doing nothing at all.

Without going too much into detail, the amount of philosophy behind What? Nothing! goes far beyond the amount of programming that has gone into creating it and bringing it to the world.

What? Nothing! has received praise from many users who claim it to be one of, if not THE, most stable Joomla! extensions available.

Setting up What? Nothing!

There are a couple of settings in the What? Nothing! system plugin to make it do nothing in a way that best suites your needs.

Be sure to adjust these settings any time you feel it can do nothing more effectively.

Installation

You can either install What? Nothing! by using the core extension manager available in the Joomla! Administrator Control Panel, or by using the powerful NoNumber Extension Manager.

Note: When updating What? Nothing!, you do not need to uninstall it first. The package will update all the files automatically.

Keep in mind that when you update to a major new version (or uninstall first), you might lose some configuration settings.

NoNumber Extension Manager

It is very easy to install/update any NoNumber Extension using the NoNumber Extension Manager.

Please see the User Guide for the NoNumber Extension Manager for more detailed information...


Joomla! Extension Manager

To install via the Joomla! Extension Manager, just follow these steps:

  1. Log into your Joomla administrator;
  2. In the menu, choose: Extensions >> Extension Manager;
  3. Choose the tab: Install from Web (or enable it if you haven't done so yet);
  4. Select the search field and enter What? Nothing! and hit enter;
  5. Click on the What? Nothing! listing;
  6. Click on Install;
  7. Click on Install to confirm.
Joomla! Installer - Install from Web

Or if you need to install the Pro version or cannot install via the 'Install via Web' method for some reason:

  1. Download the extension install file (.zip);
  2. Log into your Joomla administrator;
  3. In the menu, choose: Extensions >> Extension Manager;
  4. Choose the tab: Upload Package File;
  5. Click on the Choose File button and select the extension zip;
  6. Click on Upload & Install.

If you have problems installing What? Nothing!, please try the manual installation process as described here: docs.joomla.org/Installing_an_extension

FAQs

The plugin doesn't appear to do anything. What's wrong?

Remember to publish it.

Also check out the system plugin settings. It is important to set it up correctly so that it does nothing as optimally as possible.

My site seems faster after installing What? Nothing!

This is NOT what What? Nothing! should be doing.

If your site becomes any faster, please uninstall What? Nothing! immediately.

Installation

How can I install/upgrade What? Nothing!?

You can either install What? Nothing! by using the core extension manager available in the Joomla! Administrator Control Panel, or by using the powerful NoNumber Extension Manager.

Note: When updating What? Nothing!, you do not need to uninstall it first. The package will update all the files automatically.

Keep in mind that when you update to a major new version (or uninstall first), you might lose some configuration settings.


What? Nothing! won't install...

If you have problems installing What? Nothing!, please try the manual installation process as described here: docs.joomla.org/Installing_an_extension

How can I uninstall What? Nothing!?

You can either uninstall What? Nothing! by using the core extension manager available in the Joomla! Administrator Control Panel, or by using the powerful NoNumber Extension Manager.

If you no longer use any NoNumber extensions, you can also uninstall the NoNumber Framework plugin by using the Joomla! core extension manager.

What are the minimum requirements?

What? Nothing! will only work correctly if your setup meets these requirements:

  • Up-to-date version of Joomla:
    • Joomla 2.5.10 or higher
    • Joomla 3.3.0 or higher
  • PHP 5.3.13 or higher
  • PHP mbstring (Multibyte String) functions enabled
  • MySQL 5 or higher

Important: I can only provide support for setups that:

  • meet the above requirements;
  • do not have extension files or Joomla! core files which have been altered in any way.

Where can I download earlier versions?

You have access to all previous free versions of all extensions on this website.

If you have a subscription to an extension, you can also download any previous pro version of any extension on this website.

If you do not have a valid subscription, you can download any pro version that is older than 1 year.

You can find old versions in the changelog.

Note: Please note that I am unable to provide support on old versions! (whether you have a subscription or not).

How can I downgrade to an earlier version of What? Nothing!?

If for some reason you need to install an older version, it is best to uninstall the extension first.

You will also have to uninstall the NoNumber Framework system plugin.

After that you can simply install the older version zip file using the Joomla! installer.

Note: Please note that I am unable to provide support on old versions!

How can I upgrade from Joomla 2.5 to Joomla 3?

The upgrade of Joomla itself is a one-click process. But that just takes care of Joomla.

Many templates and extensions will not work the same or at all after upgrading to Joomla 3.

I personally advise against using the built-in upgrade process, and advise starting from scratch by installing a fresh copy of Joomla 3.

If you do want to upgrade Joomla 2.5 to Joomla 3, you will need to do this with regards to the NoNumber extensions you have installed:

  1. Disable or uninstall all NoNumber extensions.
    (Uninstalling NoNumber extensions will make you lose any global configuration settings for that extension. You will not lose any saved items)
  2. Upgrade Joomla 2.5 to Joomla 3.
  3. Re-install all NoNumber extensions you want installed.

For a detailed step-by-step migration process, see: https://docs.joomla.org/Joomla_2.5_to_3.x_Step_by_Step_Migration

Licensing

Under what license are NoNumber extensions released?

All free and paid NoNumber extensions are released under the Open Source GNU GPL v2.0 license.

See the Terms & Conditions for additional terms.

NoNumber Framework

What is the NoNumber Framework?

The NoNumber Framework is a Joomla! system plugin that is installed along with every NoNumber extension.

This plugin contains all the common functions and language strings that the NoNumber extensions use.

If you use any NoNumber extensions, this plugin must be installed and published. They will not function correctly or they will not function at all without it.

What is the NoNumber Elements plugin?

The NoNumber Elements system plugin is no longer used and has been replaced by the NoNumber Framework.

If you have been using NoNumber extensions for a long time you may still have this Elements plugin installed.

The NoNumber Elements plugin can safely be uninstalled IF your NoNumber extensions are up-to-date.

Ease of use

Functionality

Very easy to understand, nothing like making comlicating forms :)

Ease of use

What?

Finally, the one and only, true plugin that does exactly what it promises. fantastic!!!
It should really be implemented in Jommla core, such a work for nothing should not be wasted. I hope you will keep it updated forever (and ever).

For 5€ I would definitely go pro (seriously)...
I have installed most of the NoNumber extensions and have been so pleased with all of them. Truly one of the best of the best.

Keep up the great and creative work.
Wondering why there's still a unicorn in my garden?!

WTF? I went pro man!
Dont install this extension if you are a Jedi. When installed it i have lose 24% of my force. My eyes turning to red and i'm becoming a sith. If you are just a human dont be afraid, it will do nothing to you. May the force be with Peter!
oh myyyy...just what I need it after almost all night long starring in monitor. It works! I don't even installed it yet...
